I have been meaning to visit this Cathedral for almost a year but finally made it today. It is massive both inside and out. We didn’t have to wear headscarves for women and men had to take off their hats. The inside is beautiful and...More

This is a beautiful Russian Orthodox Cathedral. It is lovely to see the building itself from the outside, and one will certainly enjoy seeing the spectacular golden dome from all over the city, but it is also worthwhile to go inside and see the elaborate...More

The cathedral is really amazing, like everyone who came here has review. No doubt. But my most favourite is the bridge behind the cathedral, I could see the very nice view of Moscow. Love this place.

This cathedral is much bigger than you think when just looking at pictures. Typical russian architecture adn if you walk across the pedestrian bridge behind the church you have a great view on th Kremlin.

Once, even before the October revolution of 1917, there was a revered temple in this spot. The Bolsheviks dropped the bells, demolish the church and in its place arranged a swimming pool "Moscow". Time has changed, the temple was rebuilt anew. Moreover, it has become...More

Althought it is important for religious reasons, it is not one of the highlights of Moscow. There is nothing special in its architecture or some special reason why you should visit it. If you are not staying for longer that three days in Moscow, I...More

I agree with some of the other peoples answers, I don't think you need to be part of a group. We were with a tour group and they did ask us to stay together and not wander around the cathedral independently, but I think this... More
